Dallas Embraces Diversity Through Welcoming Week 2023   

Dallas – The City of Dallas’ Office of Equity and Inclusion – Welcoming Communities and Immigrant Affairs Division is excited for 2023 Welcoming Week, scheduled from Sept. 8 to Sep. 17.  Welcoming Week is an annual campaign celebrated in communities around the globe and connects neighbors of all backgrounds.   

This week provides residents an opportunity to celebrate welcoming values through events and local initiatives that foster mutual understanding between immigrants and non-immigrants, as well as deeper belonging for all.    

 “Dallas takes immense pride in its status as the inaugural first Certified Welcoming City in Texas, and we believe engaging diverse communities contributes to a more inclusive Dallas.” said Dr. Lindsey Wilson, Director of the Office of Equity and Inclusion.   

Let’s celebrate Welcoming Week together! The City of Dallas invites everyone to join in celebrating the importance of diversity and inclusion by sharing pictures with a multilingual “I am a Welcomer” sign on social media and tagging @DallasWCIA on Facebook.
